AIS-HACCP & Aquaculture Biosecurity

Controlling the spread of invasive species is as important to the aquaculture and baitfish industries as it is to other sectors of the Great Lakes ecosystem. The AIS-HACCP (Aquatic Invasive Species – Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) program helps prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Regular workshops offered by Michigan Sea Grant Extension help businesses understand AIS-HACCP principles. Participants study practical examples and work through hands-on exercises to help them develop plans specific to their aquaculture operations.
